If you have ever…
- given students a simple assignment and then been surprised that most students were not able to complete it correctly, or needed a lot of assistance …
- felt like you weren’t exactly sure what your students needed to complete a task successfully…
- wondered why it takes your students three times longer to complete a task than it takes you…
This workshop is for you.
Welcome to the expert blind spot. Psychologists call it the curse of knowledge. In this interactive workshop, we will work together to identify our expert blind spots. Facilitators will offer tools to guide this work in order to design course assessments and tasks that foster student success.
For this workshop we will work through real-life examples and therefore encourage participants to bring an example of a complex task, project, assignment, learning outcome or test question that you would like to unpack or decompose.
